Joe Lamp’l is a gardening expert and Â the host of the PBS show “Garden Smart” and the author of “The Green Gardener’s Guide” book. Joe is also very ambitious. Lately, Joe has been on a mission to prove to himself and the world that he can grow an edible garden that will feed a family of four on a $25 dollar budget!

I have to admit, I have my doubts that anyone can stay within this small budget but Joe has amused me by his ingenuity and ability to move scores of gardening friends to share a few seeds and other gardening necessities. What I like about Joe’s approach is that he isn’t just waiting for a handout, Joe is repurposing items that end up in the trash as essential gardening materials.
Ordered pizza lately? Don’t throw away that box- Joe has an idea for you!
Joe has given me hope because his “tactics” are very user friendly.Â
Joe Lamp’l also shares his gardening wisdom on his weekly podcast, “Growing a Greener World” that I enjoy listening to.
So, check out this “everyday Joe gardener” Â as he plants an edible garden for his family on an impossible budget!
